The War of the Pacific

By Gabriele Esposito / Illustrated by Angel Garcia Pinto

978-1-945430-20-6 Paperback $30.00 178 pp

The Pacific War was one of the greatest and bloodiest war ever on the west part of South America, and is one of the most important conflicts in South American history. It is also known as the ‘Saltpeter War’ or the ‘Guano War’ because the possession of these two highly profitable nitrates was the main cause of the conflict. 

This book examines the troops, uniforms and equipment used by the Chilean, Peruvian and Bolivian forces and traces the events of the war from the early naval blockades, through major pitched battles, to the final guerilla campaign in occupied Peru. The war ended in total victory for Chile, and that country’s military emergence thereafter as ‘the Prussia of South America’, while it cost Peru some lucrative provinces, and Bolivia its outlet to the Pacific coast. A lavishly illustrated book with original plates by artist Angel Garcia Pinto

Armies of the US-Mexican War 1846-1848

By Gabriele Esposito

978-1-950423-40-8 Paperback $30.00 123 pp

In, Armies of the US-Mexican War, Gabriele Esposito examines the organization, uniforms, and operations of the two combatants in the years 1846-1848.  The US-Mexican war is not well covered in military history, but it was a pivotal action in the histories of both the US and Mexico.

For the US, with a small professional army, it was the breeding ground for officers and strategies that marched to war in 1861. The Mexican Army was a large professional force, tempered by civil war and local uprisings.  This clash sent the two nations on different paths and with different fortunes.  This is still a colorful era for martial uniforms as shown in this excellent illustrated volume with multiple plates created just for this book.
